Our School Routine

Typically, subject to change and then change again, our schedule looks like this:
  • Morning Calendar (school days)
  • Bible/devotional/My ABC Bible Verses (daily)
  • Math-U-See (usually 3 days per week)
  • Get Ready for the Code (one lesson takes 2-3 days but Joshua asks to do it every day)
  • Spanish (3 days per week but he has been asking to do more)
  • Arts/Music (2 days per week)
  • Science/Social Studies/History (following our curriculum, a little each day)
  • Exercise (3 days per week)
  • Cooking (at least one day per week that Joshua can help prepare a meal)
Our daily schedule looks something like this:
  • breakfast
  • morning chores; make bed, get dressed, brush teeth, etc.
  • 15 minutes of playing Nintendo DSi (this has really been helping get Joshua calmed down before school starts)
  • school starts about 9
  • snack break and computer time about 10
  • finish school
  • lunch at 12ish
  • movie/cartoons/wii/free play
  • chores ( 2-3 days a week, the boys have chores to do but that is another post)
  • get ready for dinner
  • after dinner we have some family time
  • evening chores; pajamas, brush teeth, clean up toys and books, etc.
  • read books and turn out the lights
I use the Well-Planned Day to keep me sane, it breaks down each day and subject for me. Then as we complete an item I just mark it off. It also has a place for dinner planning, priorities and weekends. It is full of inspiring quotes and stories, too.

So fantastic that your child asks to do MORE. Wonderful, and shows that he is engaged, and that you've made the right choices for materials. Excellent!
